After hearing such great things about this author and book I finally jumped in and read it for myself and I wasn't disappointed. This book was just amazing. Elkeles has woven a great love story about two people from "opposite sides of the tracks". She has taken a classic sort plot and worked it in a way that leaves out wanting more. Brittany is the seemly perfect rich girl that has more secrets then anyone would know if she had her say. And Alex is the rough gang member that lays everything on the table, or so he would make you think. Truthfully he is hiding just as much as Brittany, has just as many doubts and questions. Right from their first chance encounter there are sparks and those sparks never die throughout the whole book. Elkeles keeps you routing for these two with her beautifully developed plot and her supporting characters that just aid to the story I completely fell in love with Alex and you will too. Can't wait to read the other books in the series. Well done.
